DECEMBER 1973 

MASCULINE ARROGANCE BLOWS

Dear CREEM: 
I love the 4 Seasons. I don’t think rock ‘n’ roll needs “masculine arrogance.” Why be snide about them? I always sigh when I hear “Candy Girl” and “Marlena.” You call them “featherweights.” They’re heavyweights to me. 
And by the way, what’s wrong with a man singing “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”? Can’t a man want to be friends for a long time instead of just for a night, too? Can’t you look at the song as at least partly meaning that? 
Bye Bye,
